We will announce the recipient of the award during the RIPE 76 meeting in May 2018. The recipient will be a living person who has made substantial and sustained technical or operational contributions to the development of the Internet in the RIPE NCC service region.

We specifically seek nominations of individuals who, in addition to their own contributions, have also supported and enabled others anywhere in the world.
